Peppa is a very special and quirky gal. She loves all humans, and when she knows she is safe adores sleeping in bed with you. She does well with cats and enjoy other dogs. She is a beautiful girl and actually does smile. We will try to get a photo of it because it is quite adorable when she flashes those teeth. At 42 lbs, she is just the perfect sized dog for your family.
She does prefer a calmer and scheduled household. She would be great company for someone who works from home as she loves to stay near her human. She doesn't have to be on the couch with you, but know you are home with her. She does best when she isn't being surprised, but knows what to expect. She is a bit shy at first but will do just fine once she trusts you. She has started some medication that has really helped her with any anxiety she had and is doing well.
Although, she was hit by a car at @12 weeks old, and underwent 3 surgeries to save her leg, it doesn't stop her from doing anything. She gets around absolutely fine. She loves to play with other dogs and a fenced yard would be a great added bonus for her.
Peppa has sponsorship funds to help with training because we believe that when the right person comes along, obedience training would help build a bond and help Peppa trust her new family. She also gets a bit overexcited when her people come home and will jump and play and nip a bit. My own dog is exactly her age and still does this as well. However, some very basic training has helped him correct this.
